Benefits of Using a Boiler System for Heating
G & C Plumbing and Heating explains a few benefits of using a boiler system for heating.
The first benefit is the energy efficient performance. The boiler is going to lose a lot less heat when it is operating when compared to using a furnace. This is because water is going to be a lot more effective as a medium for transferring heat compared to air. The furnace will have to heat the air in order to send it to the different rooms, but the boiler is just going to heat the water and the pipes to the terminal points.
The second benefit is that the heating period is going to be fast and even. The trouble that a lot of people are going to have with their furnace is they are going to blow out the heated air that will gather at the ceiling of the room. This means that it is going to take a whole for the heat to spread throughout the rest of the rooms inside of your home. This also means that the spread is going to be more uneven so there are going to be cold spots in some rooms. The boilers are not going to blow heat into the room like you want it to, but they are going to radiate the heat into the room by heating up the surfaces of the room. This means that the room will heat up a lot faster and more even.
The third benefit is that the long service life with fewer repairs to the boiler. This is because the boilers are not going to have all of the moving parts that a furnace is going to have. This means that they are going to last a lot longer from the wear and tear over a period of time. In fact, you can expect the boiler to last you about five years longer than a furnace is going to last. The best part is that you are going to have to make a lot of repairs to the boiler like you would the furnace. This is just another way that the boiler is going to be able to save you money.
The fourth benefit is that there will be less dust and other air pollutants inside of your home. The ducts that you have hooked up to the furnace are going to attract a lot of dust, lint, danger, and many other airborne irritants. Therefore, every time that the blower of the furnace turns on, then it is going to blow out all of these pollutants. This is going to cause the whole house to be dusty and the indoor air is going to be very unhealthy. The boiler is not going to kick up any of the dust so that indoor air is going to be a lot cleaner inside of your home.
